To sum up, you can't directly share a PDF file via Twitter. You need to create a link of the PDF file and then tweet.

1. Store PDF online

It is now possible to store a huge number of PDF files online. There are many file hosting services that will allow you to do this in a few seconds.

Hosting your PDF files on an online platform is the first step in the sharing process.

2. Shorten link and Tweet

Before sharing your PDF document, it is highly recommended to shorten the link to provide more security to users that it will direct them to a secure page and that Twitter accepts the posting, because the original link can contain more than 140 characters, which it would automatically prevent its publication.

There are various online platforms that will help you perform this task in a few seconds and there are even some that will allow you to customize your link so that you can memorize it and make it more practical to use it. Once you have finished with the process, you only have to copy and paste the link on your Twitter home page to later publish it.
